Two Things about Atheism That Everyone Should Consider by Max Aplin
Atheists like Richard Dawkins can often be heard claiming that religion makes good people do bad things. However, in recent history many of the worst atrocities have been committed by atheists, and the fear of God motivates huge numbers of people to do what is right. If the physical universe is all that exists, no human being could ever have made a choice differently than they did, which means that it is illogical to blame anyone for anything. But we have a deep sense that people really are to blame for the evils they commit.

The Man Behind the Stonewallby douglas batson
This 43-minute Civil War drama (viewable at www dot dhhill dot org, Copyright 2013) reveals the events that destined one Confederate general, Stonewall Jackson, for lasting fame, and relegated another, D.H. Hill, to the margins of history. Through an exchange of letters, based on Gen. Hill's actual correspondence, Mrs. Hill relates the joyous birth of her niece, Julia, Jackson's baby girl, as well as deteriorating conditions on North Carolina's home front.
The acerbic General Hill resigns in frustration from the Army of Northern Virginia to reluctantly assume command in Goldsboro, NC. There, he assails his own inept officers, draft-dodgers, deserters, and unionists, but saves his most toxic contempt for his Yankee opponent. Only with the shocking death of Jackson does Hill exhibit his Christian piety and tenderness. To console her grieving husband, Mrs. Hill offers some astounding insight concerning both men, who were brothers-in-law.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit Is for New Christiansby Max Aplin
Baptism in the Holy Spirit is intended for Christians from the time that they first become believers. The idea, found in some Pentecostal circles, that a Christian should aim to reach a level of spirituality where they are ready for Spirit baptism, is a mistake. If someone is a Christian, then he or she is ready for baptism in the Spirit. Traditional Pentecostal theology of Spirit baptism seems to have arisen from misinterpretation of genuine experiences of the Spirit.
Saying That Christians Who Believe in Baptismal Forgiveness Are Heretics Is a Serious False Accusationby Max Aplin
It is quite often claimed that professing Christians who believe that God's standard way of doing things is to forgive the sins of new converts at baptism are heretics. However, if those who believe this are heretics, then as far as we know all professing Christians between 100 AD and about 1520 AD were heretics. This is hopelessly implausible, especially in view of the great things that the church was involved in between 100 AD and 500 AD.

All religions say DO. Christianity says DONE.by Eugene Lopatynsky
Every law of God is for our benefit, not God's. Every EVIL committed demands eternal justice. When God forgives (saves us), God pays the penalty for the sinner. Man can never save himself by rituals, religions, or by anything which man can devise or do. Man needs a SAVIOR, willing to SUFFER for him. Incredible? It's true, Old Boy.

Co-Dependency is a bondage to please other people. Co-Dependents allow another person's behavior to affect them, and other people's problems to become their problems. They look for ways to try and fix and solve other people's problems. Co-dependents are by nature a helper and a "fixer."

In the Early Church Was It Only Apostles Who Laid on Hands for Christians to Receive the Spirit?by Max Aplin
There are some who argue in this way: In the early church, only apostles laid hands on new Christians for them to receive the Holy Spirit; because there are no apostles today, there is no longer any place for laying on hands when Christians first receive the Spirit. However, firstly, even if it were the case that only apostles laid on hands for this purpose in the early church, we would expect others to take over this practice once they had died. And secondly, there is in fact good evidence that in the early church non-apostles often laid on hands for Christians to receive the Spirit.
Should Laying on of Hands Accompany Christian Water Baptism?by Max Aplin
The Bible quite strongly suggests that in the early church a common way in which new Christians first received the Holy Spirit was through the laying on of hands, and that this may well have been the usual way. There is no good reason for thinking that God wants to do things differently today. Those churches that do not lay hands on new Christian converts should re-evaluate their practice.

Some People are Called to Stay Behindby Sue Darling
I believe there are at least two raptures. One at the beginning of the Great Tribulation and the other at the end. I believe most Christians will miss out on the first because they were not as obedient as they should of been. But some because God has specially chosen them to stay back and help out, with the many confuse Christians that are left behind.

Christian Teachers and Evangelists Should Speak Often about Hellby Max Aplin
The New Testament contains many references to hell, and the person who can be found teaching most about it is Jesus Himself. Christian teachers and evangelists should refer frequently to this subject, although often there will be no need to paint a vivid portrait of the sufferings involved. The existence of hell does not conflict with the love of God.
